Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength along with endurance movements to overall improve posture. Pilates emphasizes the use of 5 key principles and building strength upon those principles. Pilates is named for its creator, Joseph Pilates, who developed the exercises in the early 1900s. All our instructors are trained in STOTT Pilates and are physiotherapists.

Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.
